Ruby moves up to #11 on the TIOBE Programming Community Index

Ruby has moved to position number 11 on the TIOBE Programming Community Index. I'm not sure what all this means, as I have not studied the methods used to create the index, but it's pretty cool regardless. Ruby was in position #20 a year ago.

The next languages above Ruby on the list are #10 Javascript, #9 Delphi (an old favorite of mine), and #8 is C#. It will be interesting to see how the rankings go the next few months.

The index updates monthly, Ruby only entered the top 20 in November this year.

There's a description of how it generates the rankings here: http://www.tiobe.com/tiobe_index/tpci_definition.htm
